In this economy, everyone I know is having money troubles.  At the very least, cutting back on movies and dinners out.  My oldest granddaughter works overtime frequently to make ends meet and have a little extra for her kids and family.  A few weeks ago, she came to me and said, "We need to have a theme for Christmas this year!"  Thinking she meant something like Victorian, or western, etc., I said sure, what did you have in mind?  "Homemade!" she said.  I liked it! We all like it!!  We dug deep, and remembered things that we all used to make or had made for us and it has been great fun!  Old skills and new projects have gotten us all into the true meaning of Christmas,  love for one another! Celebrating friends and family and Christ's birth rather than 5 am sales on Black Friday!!
